Wake Forest and Wakefield High Schools..Celebrate My Drive

This is a special announcement for our Wake Forest Middle families from Wake Forest High School and Wakefield High School.   

Both school's JUST THINK FIRST Program entered STATE FARM's “Celebrate My Drive” Contest in order to raise awareness on teen safe driving behaviors.  You might remember that the high school lost a number of students to driving accidents several years ago as have many other Wake County High Schools.  The recent rash of student deaths due to car accidents in this area reminds us that teaching our children to be safe and to make good choices when driving or riding in a car is of utmost importance. 

Wake Forest HS and Wakefield are asking for our help with this contest. They will be competing with thousands of high schools from across the country and the schools that generate the most votes over the voting period win big.  The top 10 schools will each win $100,000.  This contest is an excellent way for schools to earn money they might not otherwise receive.  It will take you only a couple minutes to vote for either school and they will need your vote everyday October 15-24thEveryone can cast their vote for Wake Forest and Wakefield by using the following process: 

 Wake Forest High School:

All you have to do is go to the Wake Forest  HS website (www.wfhighschool.com)  and click on the “Celebrate My Drive” banner at the top.  That will take you to the national voting site.  Then just follow the prompts.  

 

Wakefield High School:

 All you have to do is go to the Wakefield HS website and click on the Celebrate My Drive banner at the top.  That will take you to the national voting site.  Then just follow the prompts. 

Although all of the high schools in Wake County compete in athletics, academics, and in the arts....supporting safe driving for teenagers is something we can come together on.  Let's help one of our Wake County schools out and vote for Wake Forest and Wakefield High to win State Farm’s Celebrate My Drive Contest.  Remember to vote everyday October 15-24 at www.celebratemydrive.com

Principal’s Message 10/13/14

Good afternoon Cougar Families – This is Mrs. Weddle, Principal of your Wake Forest Middle School with a few announcements.

This week we celebrate Spirit Week as our football, soccer, volleyball, and cheerleading teams face our nemesis, the Heritage Patriots.  Today students dressed like teachers and vice versa.  I have never seen so many Duck Dynasty beards, a la Mr. Kline. I do think the teachers enjoyed dressing like the students more!  Tomorrow is Cougar Pride Day where all grade levels dress in red, white, and blue.  Wednesday is Wacky Wednesday….remember to be dress code appropriate.  Thursday is Favorite Team Day so be sure to wear your Purple and Gold to represent LSU (HA) or colors of your favorite teams!  Friday is pajama day, another student and staff favorite. 

As of today, we are to face Heritage in a night football game on Tuesday at 6:00 at Heritage High School!  If the predicted storms hold true, we will hold the game on Wednesday at our school beginning at 3:45.  If the weather still does not cooperate, the game will be next Monday at our school.  Stay tuned to our website and twitter account for more information.  Our volleyball and soccer teams play at Heritage on Thursday. 

Parents, please remember you have until October 31st to initialize or renew your volunteer application.  You just need to stop by any school on any day and complete a short process. After the 31st, applications are accepted on Mondays only. 

Friday is an early release day.  Students get out at 11:45.  Breakfast and lunch is served.  If you’ve never had a hotdog at 9:15 in the morning, please come eat with your child and enjoy the experience!

7th grade Pegasus team members and parents.  We have received word that our new Language Arts teacher is undergoing HR required trainings this week.  She will be joining us very soon, although we are unsure of an exact start date.  We are working with her school district to establish a start date.  I appreciate your patience.  Although your children worked on the same assignments as the other 7th graders, we will use benchmark data to identify and remediate previously taught objectives if necessary.

As always these messages will appear on our website.  Please do not hesitate to contact us at (919) 554-8440 if you have any questions.  Have a Cougartastic Day!

Parent Academy Catalog

The Wake County Public Schools System is excited to announce their first Parent Academy Catalog (see attachment). The catalog contains a series of free skill-building classes, workshops, and educational events aimed at helping families learn to engage with the school system and contribute positively to their child’s academic and social success.
 
The Parent Academy is a Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) initiative designed to strengthen the relationship between parents/guardians and schools and to help parents navigate the school system. Research shows that students achieve more when parents are involved in their child’s education.
 
This is a partnership with a diverse team of WCPSS educators and local community agencies, organizations, businesses, schools, and faith-based institutions.

Important News about Transportation

Transportation Blog

Parents, 

 

WCPSS will not provide buses to daycares or after school clubs such as the Boys and Girls Club for afternoon routes. Although this has been done in the past, WCPSS has recently changed their practices in order to provide better service to students who are currently eligible for transportation.  Eligible students are provided transportation services to and from their residence, not before or after school care locations.  Again, no buses will leave Wake Forest Middle School in the afternoons and go to the Boys and Girls Club or any other non-residence location.  Parents can apply for alternate bus stops but these will NOT be considered until after the first 30 days of school.  

 

All requests for a stop other than the primary residence has to go through the school district's site at http://www.wcpss.net/parents/transportation/. School personnel is to direct all phone calls regarding transportation to the (919) 805-3030 phone number.  

This new system is in place to better provide for the students who had existing transportation (home to home).  Traditional schedule routes and stop times are posted to the website beginning Monday August 18th.  Please note there are many stop changes this year.  Parents must check their stops and not assume they will be the same as last year.  The changes were made to improve efficiency and delivery times.

WFMS PARENT PUBLICATION

COUGAR PARENTS:

 

We have developed a parent publication for new and returning Cougar parents.  Please look under our DOCUMENTS section and print off either version, Microsoft Publisher or PDF.  This is a guide to help you understand WFMS policies, procedures, and practices.  Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions or if you need further information.

Transportation information for students with alternative stops

Families can apply online for alternate bus stops

 

Families can now apply using a new online form, if they need an alternate school bus stop for before- or after-school care.

 

The online form is at http://www.wcpss.net/parents/transportation/change-bus-stop/

 

Students eligible for bus service have been assigned a stop this school year based on their home address of record. Once these routes are established, Transportation will evaluate alternate stop requests for before or after school care to determine if the requested stop fits on an existing bus route and if space is available on the bus to accommodate the student. WCPSS does not add bus stops during the first 30 days of school.

 

Students who were approved as voluntary transfers for 2013-14 and received transportation for the year may apply on this new online form to seek bus service for 2014-15. This request for service for an ineligible student will be reviewed to determine if it falls on the existing route of a bus with available space and does not significantly affect other students’ ride time. These types of requests will not be processed during the first 30 days of school as bus service for eligible students is still being established.

 

Improving bus service

This school year for the first time, WCPSS Transportation has a team of routing specialists who will work to provide eligible riders safe and timely bus service.

 

They will base routes on families who used bus service last year or families who signed up to ride the bus for 2014-15. In the past, transportation plans assumed all students would ride the bus. Of the 153,000 students last year, 76,000 were bus riders.

 

Beginning the planning process with accurate ridership will help Transportation planners provide improved bus routing. This should provide families better bus service from the start of the school year. Routes for known riders will be set for the first day of school. Bus drivers will practice set routes to be ready for the first day of school. With improved routing, buses will travel less distance saving money on fuel and maintenance.

 

Special needs students
Families of children who are homeless, have Individual Education Plans (IEPs), or have plans under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (504) may need to request special transportation, as they move into the community or change address. These families will need to enroll their child in the new school or notify their current school of the address change and inform school staff of their child’s IEP, 504 plan or homeless status. Students will be assigned to transportation.

 

After the first 30 days of school, bus drivers will monitor ridership. Transportation will drop the bus stop for students who do not use the bus for 10 consecutive school days. Families only need to apply for students to receive service again.

 

The goal of this practice is to improve the service for those that consistently ride the bus.

Please note, individual teachers may require additional supplies. This is a list to get you started as you hit those Back to School sales.

 

 6th Grade

Take advantage of the back to school sales for the following items to be kept at home for students to complete homework, study for tests, and work on projects throughout the year.  Stock up on pencils, pens, paper, posterboard, tape, glue sticks, highlighters, construction paper, index cards, erasers, colored pencils, markers, crayons, notebooks, and folders.  Don’t forget a pencil sharpener, stapler, and hole punch.
